The Arts

The goal of The Arts facet is to increase and expand art activity, and elevate our programs through arts integration.  We recognize and celebrate the creative genius of artists of African descent and make a broad spectrum of artistic experiences available for the masses, especially people of color.

Our programs include Glam4Good events at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art.  Through this forum, students have the opportunity to tour the museum, attend special viewings and attend presentations on all of the varied career opportunities that are available in the art world.

To promote the arts in our local communities, we hosted a private viewing and sale with artist, Alonzo Adams at our bi-annual Autumn Leaves Brunch this past Fall.  Over two hundred patrons attended the event.

Additionally, we sponsored the National Poster Art Contest at the Union County Team Charter School.  The winning entry was displayed at the National Assembly of the Links Incorporated. This project encourages excellence in artistic education.

The Arts facet had their Poster Art Contest, titled Make Health a Habit, at the Central Jersey College Prep Charter School. We all gathered in the cafeteria to admire the beautiful art work from the students that participated. Our very own Link Paula Taylor gave the students a taste of her cold-press juice. She explained the importance of healthy eating and the positive affect that it has on our bodies. This was a wonderful event!
